CIMF-FM is a French-language Canadian radio station located in Gatineau, Quebec, near Ottawa, Ontario.

Owned and operated by Astral Media, it broadcasts on 94.9 MHz with an effective radiated power of 84,000 watts (class C1) using an omnidirectional antenna.

The station has an adult contemporary format and is part of the RockDétente network which operates across Quebec and Eastern Ontario. It started operations as a sister station to the now-defunct CKCH 970, which closed on September 30, 1994 when the Telemedia and Radiomutuel networks merged to form the Radiomédia network (now Corus Québec).

Since 2001, the station also operates a relay in Hawkesbury, Ontario, approximately 100 kilometres east of Ottawa/Gatineau. This results from a deal between Telemedia (which then owned CIMF-FM) and Radio-Canada to allow the latter to raise the power of CBF-FM 95.1 MHz in Montreal, Quebec from 17,030 to 100,000 watts. The relay, CIMF-FM-1, operates on 88.9 MHz using a directional antenna with an average effective radiated power of 759 watts and a peak effective radiated power of 1,250 watts (class A). [1]

Its current offices are located in Gatineau at 215 Boulevard Saint-Joseph in the same building as CKTF-FM for the NRJ radio group.
